IMO, not stupid at all, but, I'm sure many would disagree here.
Can we at least agree that we'd all like to bone her?

But re: Paki Pal....he may be moving back to Houston!!! Can't wait to booze it up if he does. Lots of catching up to do.
Based on his Facebook postings of late, looks like he's getting shit for being Paki again from people, I think because of that Dr. who was arrested over there or something. Haven't been keeping up that much.
I think I may have to redact names and pictures of some of the locals I have on my FB and start posting screenshots here. It would be, enlightening...

Constant racism, no. Casual racism, sure.


Austin is so overrated. I hate the fuckers that live there.

It's exactly like the people who were moving to Brooklyn aroun '99, as if they were doing something impressive just by living there.

Good food and good record stores. What's not to like?

Well okay, Lance Armstrong's self-importance. I give you that.

So perfect. I love Austin, but the place has more than its fair share of pretentious pricks.

Just a tip: when you don't know anything about history, it is not a good idea to try to make a historical reference. Hitler a "union boss thug". That one made my day biggrin.gif

Nope.

If you want details, here goes. Hitler was a military man around 1918-1919. He was charged with the surveillance of fringe nationalist parties, especially the DAP. But after attending their meetings, instead of disrupting the DAP he quickly became a member and the rising star of that minuscule party. This is how he started his carreer. I have never read any historical account of his being part of a union.

He never "switched sides" either. He was already pretty nationalist and antisemitic when he was young before the First World War and kept these beliefs all his life. What is true, though is that the original doctrine of the DAP (soon renamed "NSDAP") included both nationalist points and a critique of capitalism. Hitler himself, as far as we can tell from his writings, never adhered to that last part. He got rid of the "anti-capitalist" crowd in the NSDAP as soon as he started to control it (end of the 1920s with the eviction of the Strasser brothers and the betrayal of Goebbels who switched sides to become one of Hitler's closest allies inside the party), although he never bothered to change the name of the NSDAP and kept the increasingly irrelevant "socialist" part of "national-socialist". That's also when he started actively courting big business leaders who would fund his political operations.

I always laugh when ignorant partisan hacks try to tell me that the NSDAP was "socialist" (it's usually used as an insult somehow: "if Hitler's party had 'socialist' in tis name then surely socialism is bad"). Just a couple books about the NSDAP history and doctrine would be enough to dispell this historical fallacy.

Laugh at yourself as there is no true definition of socialism and therefor they were socialists FOR THE DEFINITION OF THAT ERA ..

Maybe...But it would have to be dark, really dark.
